On 25 September 2008, artists, scientists, architects, comedians, musicians, playwrights, composers, engineers, film-makers and journalists journeyed aboard the science research vessel Grigory Mikheev, from Kangerlussuaq to Disko Bay. The boat will then voyage across the front of the Jakobshavn Glacier, one of Greenland's largest glaciers moving at a faster rate than ever before, losing 20 million tons of ice every day.
Created by artist David Buckland in 2001, Cape Farewell has led a series of expeditions into the Arctic exploring the seas that hold the key to understanding the changes in our weather patterns and climate. Past voyagers include Ian McEwan, Siobhan Davies, Antony Gormley, Gary Hume and Rachel Whiteread.
